The Economist: Sleepwalkers

May 24, 2013

Yep, that’s about right. Word to The Economist for a great cover. As the article says, as long as we’re not hearing anything from European heads of state, we’re all much happier.


In case you’re wondering, “50 Shades of Grey without the sex” is just a bunch of sadists in expensive suits metaphorically screwing all the young people in Europe. Plus, their dialogue is terrible, repetitive and false.

See Local Wives Turned Prostitutes or the Scenes from Spanish Austerity for more fun in Euroland.

I’m out.

P.S. It’s been several years, and now I have a long article about the Great Recession.

About the Author Daniel

How did I end up in Spain? Why am I still here almost 20 years later? Excellent questions. With no good answer... Anyway, at some point I became a blogger, bestselling author and contributor to Lonely Planet. So there's that. Drop me a line, I'm happy to hear from you.
